Reflections

file251341936484[1]Reflections

Life and the world reflect back to us our inner being, our inner truth.  And it’s very simple as to how and why.

We all tend to look around us to the outside world for confirmation of our inner beliefs – whether religious, spiritual, political, or philosophical.  We also look for confirmation of our fears, hopes, joys, and even our self-esteem.  Whatever it is that we hold within us, we look for validation.  And guess what – we find what we are looking for.

If you feel angry or victimized and want justification for that, you will find confirmation.  If you feel loving and caring and act with kindness and compassion, you will find that in the outer world.  If you believe you are worthless and have no value, you will perceive or find validation for those beliefs.  If you believe that you are strong, powerful, and magnificent, that your true nature and essence is love and consciousness, and that we are all connected, you will find evidence of that.

Our thoughts are powerful – more than we realize.  They color our perceptions, build our expectations, affect our feelings, focus our energy, and they change our world.  What we think, we help to create.  Our thoughts become our beliefs and then become our reality.

And as we grow and evolve, our experiences, thoughts, and perceptions keep changing.  And so it is with others around you – so I encourage you to stay open and to make room for other interpretations and possibilities.  Allow other people’s perceptions and viewpoints and thoughts to be valid for them.  And stay fluid and open with your own.

file4981294181825[1]Keep in mind that other people’s actions and words reflect their own inner thoughts, beliefs, issues, experiences, expectations, and perceptions – it is their journey and their inner struggle, so don’t take any of it personally – their issues are with themselves, not with you.

And what you see, hear, perceive, experience, and think reflects your own inner thoughts, beliefs, struggles, fears, experiences, expectations, and perceptions.  So the outer world is a reflection of your inner world – it shows where you are and what you think and believe.  And where it is painful or difficult, it shows where you need more work.

file2231273355591[1]If your thoughts help to manifest your reality, what would you choose to think?  Choose thoughts that you would like to see in your world.  As TUT, a Note From the Universe says, “Thoughts become things.”

And please remember that although our thoughts are powerful, we are not our thoughts.  We are the being, the essence, the loving presence, the consciousness, behind the thoughts.

Allow space for that to be and for that to saturate your life and your world with love.

    Beautiful post Lynn! And a great reminder that thoughts become things. You bring home some very valid points. It’s so critically important to think the way we want to feel. You’re so right: we can easily find validation for our thoughts, no matter what they be…so they might as well be good ones!
    Nicely done. I needed this today too. ❤

    My life changed a lot when I learned of a process of questioning my beliefs, those thoughts that appear to have significance to me. Trying to say and believe affirmations was not enough for me because I kept forgetting to do it ;-). However, questioning stories of the past and finding out what I thought happened did not happen, whoa, that is powerful. I totally agree that thoughts shape how I see my world.

    • Lynn Miclea says:

      Pam, thank you so much for your thoughtful and insightful comments. I know what you mean about saying affirmations, I also keep forgetting to do that. And I agree – changing our thoughts is much more potent than simply repeating sentences anyway – in a way, that is a living and ongoing affirmation. That sounds very powerful to find out that some stories in the past are different than you had thought. It sounds like you are in a process of wonderful and empowering changes. Thanks again for your comments, I really appreciate it – and I send you much love. ❤
